Fueling Up In U.A.E.

It comes as no surprise that the price of oil in the U.A.E. is some of the cheapest in the world, coming in well under a buck a gallon. The cheapest country to fill up is in Venezuela where a gallon of gas costs around .35 cents.

For example: When an airline such as Delta fills up there 77E in Atlanta for the flight to DBX undoudetdly there paying US prices, however when that same plane touches down in DBX and refuels for the flight back to ATL, will DL pay U.A.E. prices, which are much cheaper? If so, then a route like this can be a potential HUGE money maker for the airline in question, in this case it being Delta. Anyone with knowledge on this subject lend there help?

I don't think so.

Sure it will cost less to take on the fuel, but I don't think an airline will get a huge return from one flight.

And, you can only tanker so much fuel on one aircraft... and tankering extra fuel has an additional fuel burn penalty...

Yes. DL pays the prevailing rate at DXB, which are on par with US pricing ($3.54/gal vs $3.66 in ATL for a unnamed US airline as of 5/13). As trivia UAE has no refineries that produce Jet-A so the fuel must be imported from others.
